Hail simple to combined cycle power plant conversion

Amec Foster Wheeler is supplying four heat recovery steam generating (HRSG) units rated at 37 MWe each for the Hail power plant in the central region of Saudi Arabia about 600 km north of Riyadh. 

The dual-pressure, vertical HRSG’s will be retrofitted to four Siemens SGT-2000 gas turbines to convert the simple cycle plants to combined cycles, dramatically improving the plant efficiency.

Since the gas turbines fire Arabian light oil, the Amec Foster Wheeler HRSG’s will be designed with a hot casing and vertical gas flow to allow online and offline soot blowing and water cleaning.
